Abstract

Cardiovascular diseases represent at present the most frequent cause of death in patients subjected to regular dialysis treatment sessions (DTS). Statistically, the risk of death from myocardial infraction in a haemodialysis population aged 35 to 54 is 20 times greater than among the normal population. These complications are strictly related to accelerated atherosclerosis, one of the main complications in patients subjected to DTS.
